Innovation or Tradition — Do We Have to Choose?

Innovation or Tradition — Do We Have to Choose?

Avital Hochstein. In a world focused on innovation, how do we continue to learn from and honor a tradition that emphasizes our connection to the past? In this class, we will explore rabbinic sources which highlight traditional thoughts about innovation, and novice thoughts about tradition. Through these sources we will ask about the changing role of women and the place of democracy in the eyes of the Jewish tradition. Join us as we discover what our tradition teaches us about innovation and how we can learn to innovate in a traditional way. Recorded live as part of our 2017 Jewish Professionals Institute.
